When it comes to breakfast, I tend to opt for a savory option, but from time to time, I crave something sweet and chocolatey. And while I'm not one to shy away from a perfectly spiced cinnamon roll or a fluffy donut, I like to put a healthy twist on my meal so that I won't crash in the middle of the day. This is where my Vegan Black Forest Cake Oatmeal recipe comes in. It's perfect for mornings when I'm craving something on the sweeter side but also want a filling and wholesome breakfast to start the day.
